Sunflower Charity of the Year
The nursery has selected the charity they will be supporting for the year after parents put forward their suggestions. The charity to be supported is ‘Help Haiti Now’ which was established in 2005 to provide basic needs of healthcare and medicine, educational support, food, clothing, and shelter to Haitian people in abject poverty; to foster self-help in health, nutrition, hygiene, sanitation, and respect for the environment.
Help Haiti Now also works to highlight the plight of the Haitian people particularly focusing their time on high;lighting the Haitian concerns to a US audience.
Recently Haiti suffered from devastating earthquakes in 2010 which has left the country devastated and in dire need of support.
